The Heart of Texas Urban Gardening Coalition will be hosting a School Gardening Workshop as part of our Beyond the Backyard workshop series! This workshop will cover topics related to school gardening/gardening with kids such as:
- Outdoor Classroom Management
- Funding/Fundraising Opportunities
- Lesson Ideas/ Incorporating TEKS into a School Garden
- Local/National Resources for School Gardens
- Tips and Tricks/ Stories of Success and Failure
The Urban Gardening Coalition believes in a teaching environment that is incorporative and values your experiences and knowledge; therefore, we will ask participants to share stories and resources. It is our hope that at then end of the day we will all learn something. This includes the facilitator! We would also like to honor your time and interests as much as possible; if you anticipate attending, please e-mail us your name and the age group with which you work. That way we will be able to further shape the workshop to be as relevant as possible.
The workshop will be held at:
The portables behind Indian Spring Middle School (next to the greenhouse) located at 500 N University Parks Waco Texas 76701.
